Lyrics

Old Love / New Love

What am I supposed to say?
An old love called me yesterday, hmmm
And she sounds so sweet
Oh she sounds so, so, so

Chorus:
Drill me to the floor
This hurts even more than I expected it to do
Uh, uh, uh
Uh, uh, uh
Drill me to the floor
This hurts even more than I expected it to do
Uh, uh, uh
Uh, uh, uh

Uh, uh, uh
Uh, uh, uh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh

Light loses to the dark
We will never be apart
I’ll never be alone again!
Cause it was you who called me out
When I couldn’t shut my mouth
About the last love that did me in!
I couldn’t sleep, you said, “just sleep with me!”
I couldn’t speak, you said, “I’m listening!”
And if it breaks me down, I’ll be around
Until it’s you; you’re my new love!

Drill me to the floor
This hurts even more than I expected it to do
Uh, uh, uh
Uh, uh, uh
Drill me to the floor
This hurts even more
Uh, uh, uh
Uh, uh, uh
Uh, uh, uh
Uh, uh, uh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh

Old love, it’s been so long
Why you gotta call and hurt me, hurt me?
Old love, it’s been so long
Why you gotta call and hurt me, hurt me?
Old love, it’s been so long
Why you gotta call and hurt me, hurt
And I love you still!
Oh, I love you!

To The Top

You will never belong to me
now i can see the light – That you are
never good at controlling me
now i can see the light shine oh
and i know
and i know
it was blinding you

say life can be long
wanna know
wanna know
wanna know
wanna know
its true
when you say
I want you around
YOU GOTTA MAKE ME BELIEVE YOU

OH I KNOW ITS NOT THE RIGHT TIME TONIGHT
BUT I WON’T MOVE UNTILL THIS STOPS
(we go) BACK TO THE TOP
OH OH
(we go) BACK TO THE TOP

i’m not scared if you run to me
lost like when you where mine
and you can take what you want from me
just offer me your time

Stay, life can be long
wanna know
wanna know
wanna know
wanna know
it’s true
when you say
I want you around
YOU GOTTA MAKE ME BELIEVE YOU
OH I KNOW IT’S NOT THE RIGHT TIME TONIGHT
BUT I WON’T MOVE UNTILL THIS STOPS
(we go) BACK TO THE TOP
OH OH
(we go) BACK TO THE TOP

Golden Light

I met you first I heard your voice
On the telephone
And then again a city street
Where you walked alone
And when you came out of the dark
I was waiting there
You said
I could take it now
If you can take me anywhere
Some people say there’s a golden light
You’re the golden light (I will follow)
And if I chase after
Does it mean that it’s true
Some people say there’s a golden light
If I’m the golden light (I will follow)
But If you chase after me doesn’t mean you can see
I will try to recall
But I can’t hear it at all
The things we said that day
Am I memories dog
Am I to follow at all
The stunning things you say like
“It’s been so long, so long since I prayed or fell in love”
Some people say there’s a golden light
You’re the golden light (I will follow)
And if I chase after you
Does it mean that it’s true
Some people say there’s a golden light
If I’m the golden light (I will follow)
But If you chase after me doesn’t mean you can see
I’ll follow, I’ll follow you… I’ll follow
I’ll follow, I’ll follow you… I’ll follow
I will follow
And if you chase after me doesn’t mean you can see
Some people say there’s a golden light
You’re the golden light (I will follow)
And if I chase after you
Does it mean that its true
Golden light you’re the golden light

You Call Me On

I get the feeling that I’m always awake
And that I’m trying to dream but there is no one to take me there
I vote for you
You get the fear that you’re always asleep
And if you look out and see me me and touch me
I’ll disappear
But I don’t give damn about your dreams
Or a world that is falling at the seams cause
That’s what it’s supposed do
And don’t give a damn about the scene
If it’s the only way back to you it seems then
I’ll cry into the night to make you feel me
You called me on
Now give it up
Now give it up
You alone
You called me on
Now give it up
Now give it up
You alone I get the feeling that I’m always awake
And that I’m trying to dream but there is no one to take me there
And I vote for you
You get the fear that your always asleep
And if you look out and see me me and touch me
I’ll disappear
But I don’t give damn about your dreams
Or a world that is falling at the seams cause
That’s what it’s supposed do
And don’t give a damn about the scene
If it’s the only way back to you it seems then
I’ll cry into the night and make you feel me
You called me on
Now give it up
Now give it up
You alone

Five Seconds

Five seconds
Five seconds in your heart
Straight to your heart
I can’t get to your heart
She said
Five seconds in your heart
Straight to your heart
I can’t get to your heart
Keep me in your arms
Till the right time
Drop your head to meet mine
Then look for a sign
I don’t believe in you
You don’t believe in me
So how could you make me cry
Five seconds to your heart
Straight to your heart
I can’t get to your heart
(There’s no way to forget it all)
Five seconds in your heart
Straight to your heart
I can’t get to your heart
Five seconds in your heart
Straight to your heart
I can’t get to your heart
She said five seconds in your heart
Straight to the heart
I can’t to your heart
Nothing there to take back
But your faith
You can’t lose anymore
And I’m strange
Look at your face
When it comes it sounds like
And when it comes we kiss
When it comes it sounds like
And when it comes we kiss
Five seconds in your heart
Straight to the heart
I can’t get to your heart
She said
Five seconds in your heart
Straight to your heart
I can’t get to your heart
(There’s no way to forget at all)
Five seconds in your heart
Straight to the heart I can’t to your heart
(I’m not trying to make you cry)
I don’t believe in you
You don’t believe in me
So how could you make me cry
There’s no way to forget it all
I don’t know why
But I’m not trying to make you cry
Five seconds in your heart
Straight to your heart
I can’t get to your heart
Five seconds in your heart
Straight to the heart
I can’t get to your heart
There’s no way to forget at all
I don’t know why
But I’m not trying to make you cry
Five seconds in your heart
Straight to your heart
I can’t get to your heart

The One

I’m in love with the unlovable
You’re all in with a cruel world
There is something that’s missing
But there is something about you
I’m all eyes for the coldest star
You would do the unthinkable for me
I can’t believe sometimes
I let down the one who dares
I can’t believe sometimes
I lost the one who cared
So I’m putting all my love
To the one who’s always there
And I’m sendin’ down my love to her
Yeah I’m puttin’ all my love on the one
The one who’s always there
And I’m staring down my love
I’m in love with with my memories
You’re alone with my stuttering heart
There is something that’s missing but there is something about you
I’m all eyes for the coldest star
You would do the unthinkable for me
I can’t believe sometimes
I let down the one who dares
I can’t believe sometimes
I lost the one who cared
So I’m putting all my love on the one
The one who’s always there
And I’m sendin’ down my love to her
Yeah I’m puttin’ all my love on the one
The one always there
And I’m sending all my love to the one who’s always there

Run My Heart

You don’t know my heart
You don’t know my heart
So don’t you dare
You don’t run my heart
You don’t run my heart
Don’t pretend you can
I been workin’ on makin’ it start
Workin’ on makin’ it start again
I’m not in love
I’m not in love
I been workin’ on makin’ it start
Workin’ on makin’ it start but i cant
I’m not in love
Can’t you see I’m not in love
You wanna meet me out in the dark
You wanna meet in misery park
By the moon so low and lovely
With the gloom that’s above me
You couldn’t know what makes me dream
I couldn’t word the things I’ve seen
Like the shake of trembling things
Like the ache of unused wings
I been workin’ on makin’ it start
Working on makin’ it start again but
I’m not in love
I’m not in love
This isn’t love
This isn’t love
It’s that
I’m just a boy
And you’re just a girl
You wanna be the one to believe it
Then be the one to believe it
I’m just a boy and you’re just a girl
You don’t know my heart
You don’t know my heart
So don’t you dare
You don’t run my heart
You don’t run my heart
Don’t pretend you can
I been workin’ on makin’ it start
Workin’ on makin’ it start again but
(I BUILT THESE HANDS COLD ENOUGH FOR ME, COLD ENOUGH FOR ME, ITS NOT SO HARD TO SEE THAT YOU BELIEVE WHAT YOU BELIEVE)
This isn’t love
This isn’t love
It’s that
I’m just a boy
And you’re just a girl
You wanna be the one to believe it
Then be the one to believe it
I’m just a boy and you’re just a girl

Beg for the night

Don’t beg for the night
Feel a bit more
Don’t cry in the dark just open the door
I want all the words spun from your lips
I know its absurd to shake when we kiss
Here he comes
Here he comes
Here comes your love
He longs to be near you
Here comes the summer
I have to be with you
When this love starts (you)
Wont hurt anymore
Will you need me again
You’ve been all on your own
When this love starts
Won’t hurt anymore
If you need me again
Let me know
I’m in love with your light
Just show a bit more
I’ll wait for the night
If you open the door
I want every word
I’m hung on your lips
I know it’s absurd
To cherish every kiss
When this love starts (you)
Wont hurt anymore
Will you need me again
You’ve been all on your own
When this love starts
Won’t hurt anymore
If you need me again
Let me know
When this love starts (you)
Won’t hurt anymore
Will you need me again
You’ve been all on your own
When this love starts
Won’t hurt anymore
If you need me again
Let me know

Patient

You are adored but you say you’re alone like I’m nothing at all
That’s how you punish me
By always letting me fall
I built a sanctuary for your troubles and doubts and there I pray for you
And now you look at me
Like I wasn’t true
And maybe you don’t want no one to find out, that I
been kissing you
Maybe you don’t want no one to find out, that I
Was the taking love from you
Patient, I’m waiting
For you to give up everything
And say just what you mean
I am patiently, waiting
For you to give up everything
And say just what you mean
I want to be adorned by your lips in your hands
Can’t seem to tell you this
When you analyze
Every single kiss
You tell me you’re just the same
Boys will be boys, this was a game
And you don’t want no one to find out, that I
Was the one playing games with you
Instrumental Break
Patient, I’m waiting
For you to give up everything
And say just what you mean
I am patiently, waiting
For you to say just what you mean
And give up everything
Instrumental Bridge
Patient, I’m waiting
For you to give up everything
And say just what you mean
I am patiently, waiting
For you to say just what you mean
And give up everything
(Was the one taking love from you)
I am patient, I’m waiting
For you to give up everything
And say just what you mean
(Was the one taking love from you)
I am patiently, waiting
For you to say just what you mean
And give up everything
(Was the one taking love from you)
I am patient, I’m waiting
For you to give up everything
And say just what you mean
(Was the one taking love from you)
I am patiently, I’m waiting
For you to say just what you mean
And give up everything

When the movie's over

When the movie’s over
You and I peel away
Even in these summer days
You hang on to the things I say
But you couldn’t see what’s in my head
You come around I go down
Like a nightmare, Like a nightmare
You come around I go down I’m
I’m not the first one, night the last one
To do it all again
To do it all again
Do it all again
Do it all again
And ill cry
Ill cry
When the movie’s over
Ill cry
Ill cry
Why am I all your favorite things
In the catalogue of your memory
You hang on like the leaves themselves
Who were born to cling
You come around, I go down
This time you’re wasting, this I’m time wasting
You come around, I go down
Like a nightmare, Like a nightmare
To do it all again
To do it all again
Do it all again
Do it all again
And ill cry
I’ll cry
When the movie’s over
I’ll cry
I’ll cry
To do it all again
To do it all again
Do it all again
Do it all again
And ill cry
I’ll cry
When the movie’s over
I’ll cry
When the movie’s over
I’ll cry

I don't care

Let me know your innocent then tell me all the things you’ve done
Then talk about the parties and the boys that you got undone
I don’t care
I don’t care
Long as you can dance me round the room while you lie to me
Why then all the words how you’d never disobey your ma
Then brag about your first time in a bathroom stall
I don’t care
I don’t care
I don’t care
Long as you can dance me round the room while you lie to me
You were sittin’ home on a Friday night
I was ready to dance
You where lookin’ to fight
So you whispered something softly in the telephone
You where lookin’ to get it cause your daddies not home
So I came to you in the night
And I told you the truth and you cried
Before the night is through
I will say three words
I’ll probably mean the first two and regret the third
I don’t care
I don’t care
Long as I can dance you round the room while I lie to you
Long as we can dance around the room while we lie
Long as you can dance me around the room while you lie to me
Long as we can dance around the room while we lie

Be Mine Tonight

Tell me again what you believe
I wanna hear about anything
The island is sinking
The water aches
Tell me I’m no one
Or bend like thief
But hold like the water
That’s all around me
And in the seconds before
The moment you leave
Let me say this
Tell me again what you believe
But let one link be broken
Close the door but leave the ending open
Be mine tonight
Be mine tonight
Be mine tonight if you can’t go home
You’re mine tonight
You’re mine tonight
You’re mine tonight if you can’t go home
If you can’t go home

Tyrant Destroyed

I know you spent some time from the town to the city
Looking for a place to start
And when you were fifteen I know what you said
“I’ll never let another black boy break my heart”
You waited a decade for me to come find you
There’s never been a chance so rare
I was just stumbling out on a prosthetic love
and there had never been someone so real
this was, Love and I was such a tyrant, destroyer
as you sat sinking in my hands.
Love and I was such a tyrant, destroyer
as you sat sinking in my hands
As if it wasn’t enough just to hear you speak
they had to give you lips like that
like all of your sadness reduced to a color
then painted upon you, how could i forget you.
And who was I to think that on a Saturday night
that you would really bike home alone
And the way that I left you just hanging on Sundays
Any fair skin boy could take you home
this was, Love and I was such a tyrant, destroyer
as you sat sinking in my hands.
Love and I was such a tyrant, destroyer
as you sat sinking in my hands

When We’re Dancing

I am trying to remember all the things that I’ve know
They all shine, soft and stand alone
Like I picture you waiting at the end of a bridge
But it’s hard for me to render up the things that we did
You playing doctor with the door unlocked
Kissing on your cousin and you both got caught
And this how the cleft was formed inside the silent ground
Those words in your mouth
Please leave us alone when we’re dancing
Please leave us alone when we’re dancing
Please leave us alone when we’re dancing
Please leave us alone when we’re dancing
Is your cheek still red from where you caught her hand?
Or are you just in love again
The search party’s out yes they’re hunting your name
but all young lovers they look the same
You were driving with your eyes closed 75
With you foot to the floor and your head to the sky
And this is how the cleft was born inside the silent ground
Those words in your mouth
Please leave us alone when we’re dancing
Please leave us alone when we’re dancing
Please leave us alone when we’re dancing
Please leave us alone when we’re dancing

Slow

Don’t turn me over just let me know how long will it be before you let me go
You held the line, the bullet sewn
It’s just that sometimes time’s so slow
Sometimes time’s so slow
Sometimes time’s so slow
I don’t wanna believe or be in love
I don’t wanna be, believin’ in love
Don’t put me on just let me in
How many times did you let me win
Give me one more, my ticket’s in
Oh can’t we try again, can we try again?
I don’t wanna believe or be in love
I don’t wanna be, believin’ in love

Shooting Holes

Bite the hand I know she doesn’t care
Leave a trail the hounds will find us anywhere
Call the cops and tell em what we’ve done
Tell em that tonight we stole your father’s guns
With your right hand, you sayin
“I think we’re gonna be so close”
Let’s sing a song, on our way back home
You and me shooting holes in the moon
You and me shooting holes in the moon
Take my hand there’s no one here to see
Push your bones against the earth with me
With your right hand you saying
“I think it’s gonna be so close”
Let’s sing a song on our way back home
You and me shooting holes in the moon
You and me shooting holes in the moon
On our way back home.

At My Heels

I’m in the belly of a canyon
I can’t come up with any reason
Why a ghost is following me
Why a ghost is following me
I’ve got some feed for the longing
I’ve got the pillow for the bad dream
The apparition dancing with me
Stepping down all over my feet
There is no key to my gate
But you can still come around
Lean your ladder against my window and ill come down
Sometimes I don’t know what I’m seeing
Who’s keeping track of all that’s breathing?
There’s a world that’s waiting for me
There’s a world that’s waiting for me
I’m in the belly of a canyon
I can’t come up with any reason
Why a ghost is following me
Why a ghost is following me
There is no key to my gate
But you can still come around
Lean your ladder against my window and ill come down
There is no key to my gate
But you can still come around
Lean your ladder against my window and ill come down
There is no key to my gate
But you can still come around
Lean your ladder against my window and ill come down

Yellow Balloon

Follow me until the dawn
Orange trees on mother’s lawn
To the chapel in the valley when the day is done
And we’ll get married when our friends have gone
In the pines we learn to speak
In the leaves forget to breath
If you hear your mama calling get away from me
If you hear your mama calling get away from me
Secret hand shakes, the swimming hole
Keep awake, and we will not go old
Come on everyone come undone
Try to keep your face out of the sun
And if you get lost at the face of the moon
Follow the boy with the yellow balloon
Follow me until the dawn
Orange trees on mother’s lawn
To the chapel in the valley when the day is done
And we’ll get married when our friends have gone
In the pines we learn to speak
In the leaves forget to breath
If you hear your mama calling get away from me
If you hear your mama calling get away from me
Secret hand shakes, the swimming hole
Keep awake, and we will not go old
Come on everyone come undone
Try to keep your face out of the sun
And if you get lost at the face of the moon
Follow the boy with the yellow balloon

Tether Beat

Is your heart not heavy when she says goodbye
Do reach for another when you turn of the light
Do you sigh yourself awake
Is there nothing you can fake?
Do you wear it on your face like it’s all you can take?
Does your heart still beat?
Does your heart still beat?
All my golden looks they’ll beg for you, some day soon
And all my brief love spills around you
My love appears so thin at the end of the day
Is it too much to ask for, to put it away?
Do we pry ourselves to sleep, is there nothing that’s complete
Feel the silver string pulling my hands to your heat
Does your heart still beat?
Does your heart still beat?
All my golden looks they’ll beg for you, some day soon
And all my brief love spills around you

Castles in The Snow

You’re my Favorite daydream
I’m your famous nightmare, everything I see looks like gold
Everything I touch goes cold
Castles in the snow
Here’s all I know
Your checkered room and
Your velvet bow
Your Elvis songs in my ears
That moonlit voice that I hear
Now we are bold as breath
We walk along our golden crest
We hide away for a week
We only look an don’t speak
You’re my Favorite daydream
I’m your famous nightmare, everything I see looks like gold
Everything I touch goes cold
Castles in the snow

For Now

Far gone are summer girls
In beds with thankless boys
And all the lives that need to keep awake another century
Far off are perfect days
For now ill have to wait
In beds with all the ones I hate
To give myself, myself away
I belong to you and that’s not gonna change
I been on to you and nothings been the same
Is there anything as quiet as a night alone with you?
Had it ever been as clear as on the day that you went away
Don’t speak from other lives
Don’t need a hopeful line
Your hand upon my face is fine
Remind me of my place this time
Someone must’ve told the man in the sky
To paint a portrait of you and I
Someone must’ve gone and told him why
(Is there anything as quiet as a night alone with you?
Had it ever been as clear as on the day that you went away)
Is there anything as quiet as a night alone with you?
Had it ever been as clear as on the day that you went away

I Can’t Wait

I can not wait for summer,
I can not wait for June when all the ghost are quiet,
when everything is new
Her voice to me ” he’s always asking for a dance”
She said “I hate his moves”
Her hands under her legs “his hands are always in my pants”
she said I hate his moves”
I scan the room I see the clock your eyes are closed it’s getting dark
Is it over?
I can not wait for summer, I can not wait for June when all the ghost are quiet, when everything is new.
Her face to me I see she’s asking for a dance, you know she loves my moves.
Her hands around my waist, my arms around her back. You know she loves my moves.
The quiet room the evening draw “I never felt so wild at all, is it over”
the boy who sits across from me just turns his head and doesn’t see till it’s over.

Forget

They’ll give us something; they’ll give us so much to forget
Or enough rope to deal with it
With pencil and knife you heard your love again
You wrestled your nightmares, the sweat in your bed sheets
This is all of it; this is everything I’m wanting to forget
When winter sets in, it has a way of crystallizing the bad times
The fevers, the heart aches
This is all of it; this is everyone I’m wanting to forgive
They’ll give us something; they’ll give us so much to forget
Or enough rope to deal with it
With pencil and knife you heard your love again
You wrestled your nightmares, the sweat in your bed sheets
This is all of it; this is everything I’m wanting to forget
